The Catch

FlyFishing for Tarpon, Bonefish and Permit ....2 out of 3
We managed to have 5 tarpon gulp the fly but only hooked and fought one but lost him on the third
jump…a little ” Buck Fever ” and it happens when the Tarpon grab the fly 10-30 ft from the flats skiff
In 2 feet of water..
Easy to get excited and part of the reason we continue to fly fish for tarpon in shallow clear water.

My pal Leon did catch a nice Bonefish on the same flat when the little silver bullet beat the Tarpon that was tracking the fly to the lunch, crazy and fun
